Il Giardino d’Amore was founded in 2012 in Cracow. In the years 2012 & 2013 the orchestra performed at festivals such as the Bach Festival in Vienna, Utrecht Oude Muziek Festival and the Tartini Festival in Piran.
In autumn 2013 the orchestra held their first tour in the USA and Canada, and performed at the Festival of Early Music Celebration in New York. In 2014 Il Giardino performed in the prestigious concert hall of the Mozarteum in Salzburg, as well as was invited to the festival in Oslo, Norway. During their second tour in USA they performed in Carnegie Hall New York and California, where members of Il Giardino led the master class at the Universities of Los Angeles and San Diego.
Years 2013 – 2018 are dedicated to French music. This fascination started by the recording Cantates & Petits Macarons, the album with french cantatas in 2013, then the presentation of the opera ballet by J.Ph.Rameau – Les Indes Galantes in 2015 and 2016, and it will continue in the 2017/2018 season by performance of another Rameau opera ballet – Naïs.
Il Giardino was focused on large projects with polish sacred music in 2016. Their 2016 tour in the USA was dedicated entirely to the promotion, and popularization of this fascinating music. The fruit of this dissertation is the album The Heart of Europe.
